The Wachowskis Reportedly Developing a New Matrix Movie


Two years ago, it was revealed that Warner Bros. Pictures was in the early stages of developing a new Matrix movie with Zak Penn in talks to write the script. Back then, it was said that the Wachowskis were not involved with the new film.

Written and directed by the Wachowskis, The Matrix trilogy of films were released in 1999 and 2003. The Matrix grossed $463.5 million worldwide, while The Matrix Reloaded earned $742.1 million and The Matrix Revolutions brought in $427.3 million. All three films, starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, and Hugo Weaving, were produced by Joel Silver.

With John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum opening in theaters, Yahoo! Movies got a chance to talk to director Chad Stahelski, who also worked on The Matrix movies as a stunt double and coordinator. He revealed that the Wachowskis are now involved with the new project.

“I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved,” Stahelski said in a new interview. “And if it’s anywhere near the level of what they’ve already done, it wouldn’t take more than a call to go, ‘Hey, we want you to be a stunt guy’ and I would probably go and get hit by a car.”

But are the Wachowskis directing the new Matrix movie? “I’m not sure of the overall,” Stahelski said. “I’m not sure if Lana is.”

Yahoo! Movies also asked John Wick star Keanu Reeves if he would return. “That would be a gift,” Keanu told them. “I wouldn’t say no to that. Yeah.”

He also about possibly playing Neo so many years later as well: “I think when you get to revisit a story and continue to tell a story, you’re bringing in the past and the work that you’ve done. So for me, it’s about placing the emotional state of where you are into who the character is. How do they feel? How do they think? And then putting on the suit if the costume really becomes the exterior that you fill in.”
